Internship information
General Farm Description: Maidstone Harvest is the place where the cook meets the garden. Several years ago, cooking an abundance of fresh organic produce from my kitchen garden, I dreamed of creating the same quality produce from Maidstone to my favorite farm-to-table restaurants. Today, that is a beautiful reality in Annapolis, Maryland. With our talented team, we incorporate sustainable farming practices that supply and inspire seasonal selections to local restaurants.
